Axis Transportation Service charges \$12 initially plus \$2.50 per mile for every mile traveled. Tri-City Transportation Service charges \$16 initially plus \$2.00 per mile for every mile traveled.

Write an equation in two variables (x & y) that illustrates the costs for using Axis Transportation Service. (Use the form y = mx + b)

Write an equation in two variables (x & y) that illustrates the costs for using Tri-City Transportation Service. (Use the form y = mx + b)

If the trip is 2 miles, how much does each one charge? If the trip is 4 miles, how much does each one charge? Show your work.

At a certain mileage both services will be charging the same rate. Use your equations to find that mileage and then explain what is happening â€œgraphicallyâ€ where the services are charging that same rate? Show your work.
